Priscilla Kibbee Fashion Show

The November program at the Weavers Guild was a fashion show of coats by Priscilla Kibbee. The coats are pieced and quilted using the most amazing assortment of fabrics and artifacts from all over the world. Some of the coats were just stunning for the workmanship and others were just plain fun. Several of the coats had themes, ie. Cows Don't Get no Respect featuring cow fabrics, and Life is Short, Eat Dessert First. Theme fabrics were collected over many years until Priscilla had enough to make each coat. Each coat was completely unique and there were LOTS of them, she filled her car and left many more at home. Priscilla teaches and exhibits all over the world which gives her ample opportunities to collect wonderful embroideries, beadwork, needlepoints, etc. to incorporate into the garments. The guild really enjoyed seeing her work and the models had a great time wearing these unique garments.
